    I'm wanting to use the EyeTV Hybrid with a Mac Mini. I have DirecTV satellite and was wondering if I could connect my satellite receiver to the EyeTV to the Mac Mini. The main reason for doing this is to be able to schedule/record tv shows from my satellite receiver to the Mac Mini. I also want to use it as a DVD player/music player.

    If anyone knows if this will work or has this set up, please help me. And, if it matters, my DirecTV satellite receiver model is HD - H21-100. I don't have an HDTV.

    I have to bump this thread because I thought I had this figured out, and now I don't. I edited my first post back to the original question.

    So scroll over to the "Analog Inputs: Satellite (With Satellite Receiver)" and follow those instructions at the link above.
